INDEX 



Attention is- called to the sequence of data in this bulletin. All crops on 
which official estimates of acreages and production are carried are inserted in 
alphabetical order. Where there is more than one season given the order is as 
follows: All, fall, winter, and spring-. Each crop carries the following secuence of 
data by season: Fame of crop - Season; Acres harvested, by Counties, 1941-42 to 
1947-48; Acreage, production and value, State rtimmary , 1938-39 to 1947-48; Acreage 
and production by counties and areas, 1947-48; Shipping data; Per acre costs and 
returns. The latter is all or in part on colored paper; each major cro^ is separated 
by colored reaper.

FORE W ORD 



The Florida Crop and Livestock: Reporting Service functioning as the field unit 
of Agricultural Estimates of the Bureau of Agricultural Economics, United States 
Department of Agriculture in cooperation with the Department of Economics, Agricul- 
tural Experiment Stations, University of Florida herein submits its fourth annual 
summary of vegetable statistics. 

It is to be assumed that every farmer is interested in the welfare of the agri- 
culture of the Fation, and that of his State, county, and local community-. It is only 
natural for each grower to be vitally interested in his own prosperity. It is neces- 
sary for others to prosper that one may prosper for the old theory of "ketch 1 em and 
skin'em" is very much out of date. The theory of "live and let live" is far more 
commendable and enduring. The only sound basis for agriculture is for all parties 
concerned to be interested in the common welfare and to keep themselves well informed 
so that each individual can intelligently make his own decisions as to his own 
private business and give his best judgment and inflxience when called upon to act in 
behalf of the public. 

Tliis compilation of "Government" reports can be said to be the summation of indi- 
vidual reports from hundreds, even thousands, of producers and other well informed 
source?. In order that the agriculture of the State and the Fation may operate effi- 
ciently and successfully, it is necessary that the farmers, the people ::ho do bu sines r 
with farmers, and the Government be constantly informed vdth up-to-date facts about 
present and erospective supplies of farm products and about the income and purchasing 
power of farmers as well as many other fundamental factors affecting farm prosperity. 

Cooperative relationships between Federal and State agencies tend to eliminate 
duplication in the collection and. publication of agricultural statistics and make it 
possible to provide better local reports such as the county and area estimates con- 
tained in this bulletin. Timely local releases and digests which are of particular 
interest and importance to growers and those serving particular areas and segments of 
the industry can be more readily provided. Some of those using crop reports and agri- 
cultural statistics are individual farmers who need unbiased and up-to-date reports 
which enable them to help themselves; legislators and administrators in local, State, 
and National governments who use them as a basis for constructive oublic programs for 
farmers ; for those concerned with our foreign trade policies; State agricultural 
colleges, extension services, State departments of agriculture; economists use them 
in preparing Outlook and Situation reports j agricultural research workers in industry. 
State experiment stations, etc; farmers organizations and cooperatives; civic and 
state organizations; banks, insurance and credit organizations; railroads end other 
tronsnort services, and many others who are an important part of the vast network thai 
plays a part in getting the production of the soil to the consumer in its best condi- 
ti on . 

The farmer, being a rugged, individualist, is expected to fight the hardest to 
preserve oui individual freedoms. Those of us in agriculture recognize that the best 
way to kelp the farmer preserve those freedoms is to help him to help himself. Part 
of this help will be to keen him, and those -./ho serve him, well informed. In order 
for us to do a r^ood job of this we must receive the fullest possible cooperation from 
him in the form of regular and. accurate statements concerning his crons, livestock 
and other farming operations. 

istimates -are based on historical facts and opinions together with current facts 
and opinions. T/is bulletin is made up of historic facts of commercial vegetable pro- 
duction corrected and revised according to the best information and data available. 
It is respectfully submitted to the best use of agriculture in the State of Florida.

makes these reports possible. 

DEFINITIONS AND EXPLANATIONS 

SEASONAL GROUPINGS 

In order that competitive production within the State of Florida and the United 
States may be classified on a National basis under reasonably uniform groups, We have 
established a National pattern which is based on most active harvesting periods; 
These major groups are WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER, and FALL" The VflNTER group includes 
the months of January, February, and March; SPRING includes April, May, and. June; 
SUMMER includes July, August, and September; and FALL includes October, November, and 
December. These periods are not rigidly fixed mid. the harvesting period for a parti- 
cular grouping may extend over into the preceding or following group. However, in 
arranging; our data we have followed these groupings in so far as it is practical. It 
can be readily seen that some systematic order of grouping is necessary for compara- 
tive purposes and, while they may not always agree with some local designations now 
in use, it is best for all concerned to handle our classifications on a National basis 

PLANTED ACREAGE 

Estimates of planted acres for any se asonal group consist of acres for harvest 
(see below) during that particular seasonal group plus any acreage planted for har- 
vest during the season, but which was lost or destroyed and did not produce a crop in 
the season under consideration. This definition is based on a "loss of crop" concept. 
If the acreage is lost and not replanted it is counted as planted. If it is lost but 
replanted for harvest in the same season as the original acreage would have been har- 
vested, the" acreage replanted is not considered as add itional acreage planted. . But, 
if the acreage lost is replanted, for harvest in a later season, it is considered as 
planted for both seasons and as acres for har vest only for the later season. 



ACRES HARVES TED OR FOR HARVEST 

Acres harvested or for harvest is considered as being all acreage from which a 
crop could have beer harvested had economic conditions (prices, available labor, 
etc) warranted the harvest. This includes mature acreage on which the harvest was 
postponed or delayed too long due to economic reasons and the production lost there- 
by. Acreage which produces such low yields or poor cuality that the crop is not 
worth picking at any reasonable price is considered as crop failure and is not in- 
cluded in the acreage for harvest. Unharvested acreage which produces yields which 
would be harvested at reasonable prices is included in acreage for harvest. 



II 



ECONOMIC ABANDONMENT 



This category includes mature pro duction not harvested because of economic 
factors, such as low prices, shortage of labor, etc. Such loss of production includes 
quantities left in fields partially harvested as well as production on acreage aban- 
doned for economic reasons. Acreage abandoned at any stage of growth before maturity 
will be considered as loss of acreage or crop failure rather than economic abandon- 
nent of production. 

YIELD 

Yield refers to total production of merchantable quality produced on an acre 
basis and may include some unharvested production left in fields for economic reasons. 

PRODUCTION 

Total production represents the yield times (X) the acres harvested or for har- 
vest. Production of value is that part of the production which was harvested and 
sold or utilized while in the fresh state and does not include economic abandonment. 

UNIT VALUE OR PRICE 

All of the prices used in this renort are on an F.O.B. basis or its equivalent, 
less selling charges. In the case of some commodities which are sold in units other 
than the one listed, these units are converted into the equivalent of the ones used. 

TOTAL VALUE 

The total value is the price per unit times (X) trie production of value, 

CANNED OH PROCESSED ACREAGE AND PRODUCTION 

The acreage of vegetables in Florida planted solely for canning and processing 
purposes during the period covered by this publication has been insignificant. The 
acreages of beans and tomatoes, the principal crops canned, are planted primarily for 
fresh market but during recent years substantial quantities have been canned. In 
order to conform to the National pattern for recording the fresh and processed pro- 
duction, we have shown the equivalent, acreage on which this processed production 
would have been grown and listed the remainder as acreage grov.n for fresh market 
production. 

COSTS AND RETURNS PER ACRE IN 
SELECTED AREAS IN FLORIDA 

These tables reoresent the summarization of grower records or estimates of costs 
and returns per acre from several vegetable crops in the major producing areas of 
Florida for the 1947-48 season as compiled by the Florida Agricultural Experiment 
Stations. Both costs and returns are computed on the basis of acreage harvested and 
weather losses or economic abandonment have not been considered. In so far as 
possible, growing and harvesting costs have been separated and labor items excluded 
from costs of materials.
